Titans was the first book I followed back in the 80's and Starfire has become my favorite character from that series. Raven and Cyborg have received the miniseries treatment...so should Starfire get her own miniseries or series? I've racked my brain for a good storyline but have come up with naught. Therefore what are your thoughts on the subject and what would be a good plotline?

I see potential in a miniseries... uhm, not in that way. Starfire, apart from her adventures during 52, has had very little character development other than the odd conflict on Tamaran or in the Vega System, or fighting her bitter sister. I'd like to see a story where something more is added. In particular, I'd like to explore how she remains strong and positive despite enduring horrific treatment at the hands of the Citadel and the Psions, a point that I don't think was investigated. A normal person would have gone insane or suicidal, but she hung in there and ultimately had the last laugh.  
There must be something more to add to the table here.

She looks pretty developed to me... </rimshot>
 
Seriously, the character does have tons of potential. Kory can do both cosmic and more down to Earth adventures. She's almost like how Power Girl was until recently... well liked, always in something or another, but never a major player. A solo series could do wonders.

 I'd definitely be interested. She's more interesting than most of the heroes with their own series.

I'd LOVE to see Starfire get her own series or miniseries, she's by far one of the the toughest and most interesting of DC's heroines (way cooler than Wonderwoman in my book).  I could see her in all sorts of different scenarios, for example, with the Vega System no longer off limits to the green lanterns I imagine that the criminals of Vega have become quite desperate and aggressive, and since Vega is her home galaxy I could see her facing off against all manner of supervillains, including her old foes the Psions, Gordanians, Citadelians, and her arch nemesis Blackfire, to newer baddies like the Sinestro Corps and Agent Orange.  She definitely deserves at least one storyline where she is the main character and gets a chance to shine without her titan & justice league allies tagging along.

@Mediant: Indeed, at the very least she should be given a chance with a mini-series.

@Smart_Dork_Dude: but her personality is based in the original. I don't know where do you read her, but she's as sweet as this one and i have proofs! xDDDD .... No, but really, i respect your opinion, this one is more calm, less sexual, more suitable for children... and less warrior, thing that frustrated me in her fight scenes >:c But i do like her in almost all her appearances :)

She's been pretty great in Red Hood and the Outlaws, so I doubt she needs any more exposure.

No.

I can't imagine the cost of producing that book ever being matched by sales.

@WonderHunter: I'm talking compared to modern Starfire and even more so with New 52 Starfire, TT Starfire is the superior character to me.

@Smart_Dork_Dude: Hum, yeah. New 52 Starfire don't convince me.... not entirely, at least. They put her a few new cool things, but the writing doesn't work for me. But i have faith with the new writer.

I would buy it. Of course she is hot, but she has a nice background stories, unique powers, and.... is hot.

I'm not sure if there would be an awful lot to work with, but it could work, potentially. I think it would be better if they handled her like they did Roy Harper, Deadman, and Kid Flash. Just give her a few issues in DC Presents. It would be absurd to think that we'll get any more of her considering how garbage Red Hood and the Outlaws are. And, Green Lantern has made made me more interesting in sci-fi stories, so it could be potentially good. Not sure who they'd get to write her though. Geoff Johns or Gail Simone, maybe?

Indeed, the new DC Presents will be a Starfire feature (and the Arsenal one was likeable enough, so I'm optimistic).

But frankly, I don't really think she needs a mini or a series. RHatO is a very small cast book, and I think seeing as the first arc focused on Jason, and the second arc focused on Kori, and after DotF stuff is over the next arc seems to be focusing on Roy, the book is doing a good job of making sure none of the three leads feels like a back-up character. So being a focus 1/3 of the time and being important the rest of the time, I think RHatO serves as a perfectly decent Starfire story vehicle. And insomuch as having her solo or join a different team would likely mean breaking up this one, I would be against it.

I would love for Starfire to get her own mini-series as I feel she has a ton of potential as a character. I would love to see a mini showcasing her past, focusing on her fighting slavery throughout the cosmos. I like the idea of her being a famous hero/warrior throughout the Vega System.

Yes. But she would have a good writer on her solo. But of course i could imagine groups or solo would appeal to bigger audience.
